Environmentally Sound Wastewater Solutions
USA Sludge’s onsite low temperature sludge drying technology and odor free sludge treatment systems are easy to operate and deliver cost effective, results. This saves the end user valuable time and money, all while meeting and exceeding the EPA quality requirements for Class A bio-solids.
Equipment that a treatment plant operator does not have to fix and no longer operates…
- Filter Press
- Digester Pumps and Boilers
- Odor Control Equipment
Reporting and Liability:
Tremendous reduction in liability and reporting to move to an EPA Class A EQ Bio-solids program
Eliminate Emissions Permits:
The most advanced energy efficient systems offer an odor free sludge treatment solution, requiring no odor control equipment or emissions permits.
Recapture of filtrate water from the dewatering process and water recapture of in the form of condensate in the drying process can be used for reclaim water.
Elimination of hauling contracts which also means wear and tear on trucks and roads and reduced Carbon emission with reduction of burning Fossil Fuels for Transportation as sludge volume is decreased by 90%.
By using state of the art, sludge drying technology, this eliminates composting by pumping sludge at .007% solids and have it dried to Class A EQ Bio-solids within 2 hours after pumping to our drying system without the need for digesting, while retaining more of the calorific value than composting piles. All this and without 90 days of odor and decay and the release of Methane from composting. The “carbon footprint” of the 100 lbs. of Nitrogen in compost fertilizer is 6,403 lbs. of CO2. That is 14.6 times as much as for synthetic urea fertilizer! It is the equivalent of burning 331 gallons of gasoline!
The pellet produced by our sludge drying technology can be used for different things depending upon the kind of sludge being dried.
- Municipal Sludge to Fertilizer or Hydrogen Rich Energy Pellet to be burned.
- Milk Sludge (12,000 Btu per Pound) to Fertilizer or Animal Feed
- Winery Sludge to Fertilizer or Animal Feed
- Oil Tanker Sludge to energy pellet to be burned with coal
